James Newman

James Randall "Randy" Newman passed away on September 13, 2021, in Sulphur Springs, Texas.

Mr. Newman was born on March 21, 1956, in Brownwood, Texas. He was the oldest child of Lewie and Peggy Newman. He graduated from May High School in 1974 and briefly attended Cisco Junior College before beginning his career at 3M in Brownwood.

Among many of the pleasures in his life were listening to blues music, teaching his children, nieces, and nephews how to tie a lure on their fishing line, setting up a new bow and arrow, teaching their late dog, Heidi, new tricks, and cheering on the Brownwood Lions when his daughter was cheerleading.

After 35 years of service to 3M, he happily and eagerly retired in 2012. Upon retirement, Randy and Debra decided to leave Brownwood for greener pastures and moved to the Northeast Texas town of Winnsboro, a short drive away from his beloved Lake Fork. There, his already green thumb thrived, growing a garden full of jalapenos and tomatoes and taking great care of his enormous yard. He leaves behind a loving family who will miss his sense of humor and calming presence but knows they will be reunited on one fine day when the Lord calls us all home. Thinking back on childhood fishing trips with his dad, Marshall remembered looking at his dad on the other end of the boat and thinking, "that was one cool cat."

Randy was preceded in death by his mother, Peggy Newman.

Survivors include his loving wife of 32 years, Debra; son Marshall Newman and wife Erin and daughter Randa New and husband Tyler; his father, Mr. Lewie Newman and wife Ina Mae Newman; siblings Jerry Newman and wife Betsy, Sue Wells and husband Greg, David Newman and wife Alicia. He leaves behind his beloved grandchildren Riana, Delaney, Nash, Carys Newman, and Bennett New. He is also survived by numerous nephews, nieces, and extended family.

A private family service will be held in his honor. The family requests any memorial donations be made to C.A.S.T for Kids Foundation, castforkids.org.
